Today (just another day) is finally here!!!

Good morning! I’m reblogging last year’s Valentine’s Day post today. It’s been a busy week, one of those weeks I’ve felt on the go but then I look back to count my accomplishments and can’t even name half of one…I only have time for a reblog this week but last year’s post was encouraging so here it goes…

For His Purpose

1518640147896-418848181Today is the day!! It’s finally here..I’ve been anxious for it to get here for nearly 365 days now when I first adopted the “idea”…

Over the past year, since last Valentine’s Day 2017 I’ve been preparing something..and I finally used it as a gift today!! I wrapped it up and placed it down in a cute little heart covered bag with red tissue gushing out the top.

Can I just be the first to say I’m actually not a huge Valentine’s Day fan, like I don’t feel it’s necessary to have a set day devoted to “love.” I believe love should be shown any day of the year and not amplified on one particular day such as Valentine’s Day.

About For His Purpose~ My name is Alicia and I'm a thirty-something year old who loves Jesus. Only through God’s amazing grace and mercy I have been redeemed from past regret and shame. Reading His word has allowed me to look past Satan’s forceful lies, to see myself for who Christ says I am in Him. Through writing I have learned why I made the choices I made in my younger years and I now have a better understanding of why I desire to love God like crazy these days. Despite my daily failures, God remains faithful always. I am reassured of His unconditional love for me by every ink-drop spilled out on paper, each committed prayer as I cry out to Him, and deep understanding reflected through reading His word as truth. Yes keeping a blog will make me vulnerable to others’ opinions- there will be some who don’t understand, some who may criticize or judge, but on the other hand if just one piece expressed through my writing grabs someone’s attention and directs them to God, then pouring out my heart in a blog for the world to read is worth it. I choose to glorify Him alone through words streaming across a glowing screen. And it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t reveal the fact that I’m incredibly quirky; I’m my loving husband’s best friend, my vivacious kids’ craziest cheerleader and spiritual trainer (3 John 1:4). I love anything farmhouse and rustic style. I think cupping a warm coffee mug in the palm of my hands is more satisfying than the contents within. I share a common obsession with my husband for the mountains, but I would (without a doubt) settle for waves crashing against my legs at the Atlantic Ocean just as well, and I almost always have a Yorkie curled up on my lap while writing. *All photos are photographed by forhispurpose.blog and therefore may not be stored or photocopied in any manner.

    1. You should!!! It’s hard, I’m not gonna fake it, BUT it’s worth it and some days when you’re really thankful and feeling blessed you write out more than one days worth…write out as much as you feel at that time…and google search ideas to be thankful for about your spouse but adjust according to what applies to the two of you…you’ll have to let me know if you decide to or not…I’m actually going to begin reading through the journal I kept for Nate starting tomorrow because I feel like some of my compliments were things I take for granted and I never want to grow used to his good qualities to the point I become expectant or taking him for granted..I need the reminder in this crazy busy day to day life (of how incredibly blessed I am to have such a loving Christian husband)

  1. I remember when I thought love was a feeling, but I was mistaken… Jesus is love and that is an action, as well as a choice. I never knew the love of a father until I felt the impact Jesus had on my love and how he has loved the church (us) through his living word. I use to say I know I love her because she makes me feel…. Now I know love isn’t how someone makes me feel because that is selfish. Today it is how can I serve the ones I love so I can be selfless. Thank you for your post.

    1. Right! Good point!! And look at the way Jesus laid down His life for us (service that we never deserved!) I’m looking forward to reading your blog, definitely has my interest, congrats to your achievements and faith in Christ, praise to Him!! My husband and I have similar stories/struggles such as yours..it’s funny some ‘People will say I love your testimony, I wish I had a testimony like that’….ummm (scratching my head, lol)

      I always remind them if you are following Christ and leading others to Him, you have a testimony and you should be excited to share it with others!!!!!!! You don’t have to have a mess of a life that you finally somewhat organized based on Jesus in the center just to have a good testimony!😉

      1. I thought the same thing myself. I asked a friend who has had a comfortable life on the outside if he ever had an internal struggle that he battled daily, he said well yeah… I shared with him the only difference was that mine was a little more transparent. Being separated from our father is torture, it doesn’t matter to what degree. But when you allow the spirit to work in and through you to remove that self defeating behavior that is the testimony. When you hold your tongue and allow God to calm your emotions that is a testimony. Because those words could of had a lasting affect on someone. God is so good. Sorry I was rambling a little but I am just so happy how God moves!

      2. Absolutely, great words of wisdom..I need the reminder (daily) to allow the Holy Spirit to work in me, otherwise I’m quick to respond out of flesh reaction when trouble or negative comes, almost like here Satan allow me to roll out the red carpet for you…I’m such a work in progress but getting so much better about not being consumed by my past and shame, rather I can look at that ‘mess’ and how God is using it as a message these days🙂
